Last night, while visiting Santa Terra, in Arizona, I noticed a sign: "YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL". The moon was full and the sign reminded me that each of us is sacred. Our problems only come when we suffer from amnesia from this fact. From this perspective all healing comes from remembering this fact. A man trained by an old one, by Tom Brown, Jr., spun a fire using a yucca spindle and sagauro fire board. It was my third experience with spinning of fire. The first was in an athropology class viewing a black and white film of a !Kung bushman spinning a fire. The second was while training during Tom Brown's classes. The third was last night when Danny and Patrick teamed to create the spark. Blessed is the match consumed in kindling flame. Blessed is the flame that burns in the secret fastness of the heart. Blessed is the heart with strength to stop its beating for honor's sake. Blessed is the match consumed in kindling flame. ---Hannah Senesh
People drummed to the rising full moon and I danced with the stars and my friends, admiring the life force expressed by so many generations. So in the life beyond our politics "Eat, laugh. cry, sleep, dream, being wild, brave and friendly" to quote Martin Prechtel.
